Things to do in Southend-on-Sea

This charming seaside town is perhaps most famous for Southend Pier. At 1.33 miles long, it’s the longest ‘pleasure pier’ in the world and has a unique mini train to take you to the end. You can fish from the pier, watch seals at play, eat in the many cafes – including fish and chips of course, or visit the small museum.

As well as traditional seaside fun, there are plenty of opportunities for an active retirement in Southend. There are endless coastal walks and chances to spot wildlife along the seven miles of coastline, while close to the beach, you’ll find Southchurch Park. It’s a beautiful place for a stroll with a café, pond, basketball court and playground. And if you like to play a round while you walk, there are plenty of golf courses nearby too, like Garon Park Golf Complex, Thorpe Hall Golf Club and Rochford Hundred Golf Club.

If arts, history and culture are more your thing, you’ll be spoilt for choice in Southend. Take a trip back in time at the Central Museum or Prittlewell Priory, a12th century monastery. Alternatively, see the stars at Southend Planetarium, view contemporary exhibitions at Beecroft Art Gallery, or catch a show at the Palace Theatre, established in 1912.
